Schalke general manager Horst Heldt has admitted that star striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar could be allowed to leave the club at the right price. However, the general manager also added that he didn't believe Arsenal would be the club Huntelaar joins when he leaves the German outfit. The 29 year old striker scored 29 times in 32 league games last season, and after failed spells at Real Madrid and AC Milan, has finally found his stride, continuing his impressive form into this campaign.
With just a few months left on his contract, Schalke are prepated to sell him should Huntelaar continue to reject the new contract they are offering, and the Dutchman could go for a bargain Â£6 million in the January transfer window.
Heldt though remains steadfast in his belief, telling the Sun, "There have been no offers or any sign of Klaas-Jan leaving. If someone comes to us six months before the expiry date, and has a lot of money, we will deal with it. From Arsenal circles we hear there is no money anyway."
The news will come as a bit of a shock to Arsenal fans, with the club having just inked a new Â£150 million deal with Emirates. With Arsenal struggling in the League this season, and making no genuine headway towards ending their 7 year trophy-less run, one would have expected Arsene Wenger to loosen his purse strings in the January transfer window and boost the squad, especially in the striking department.
